Other work

Shillue announced his 12 in 12 project, whereby he would release an album of new material each month from November 2012 to October 2013. Some viewers of Red Eye believed the promotion of these new albums was simply a running gag on the show, a misconception which Shillue and Gutfeld dispelled on air, leading to a spike in sales.
